Becker’s Hospital Review: How UT Health Austin is 3D printing N95 masks personalized for clinicians . “University of Texas at Austin is using facial scan and 3D printing technologies to create custom N95 masks based on the clinician’s facial shape. The mask, dubbed the Contour3D, is made of non-porous material that can be sterilized in an autoclave and features a screw-cap end that allows used filters to be swapped out for fresh inserts. UT Health Austin partnered with a team of engineers, medical professionals, software and IT experts and 3D printing specialists to create the mask. The entire process took about five weeks.”
